The Perfect Shampoo By NAAVA

We do it all the time, some of us more than once a day. It seems second nature, but what you don’t know about the suds in your hair is there’s actually a protocol to it. Today is all about washing your hair the right way!

 

Step One:

Rinse hair thoroughly before even beginning to lather up. Rub and massage your scalp while you rinse. The thing we might not all know about hair is that most products we use on a daily basis can be broken down by water, so it is key to rinse for a few minutes to get it all out.

 

Step Two:

For most normal heads of hair, not too thick and not too thin, a nickel size amount of shampoo is more than enough. And the secret lies in where you start. Don’t take to the top of your head like most would assume, start at the nape of your neck and lather/massage your scalp up to the top of your hair. If the shampoo stops lathering add more water not more soap!

 

Step Three:

Stimulate your scalp by massaging it before and during the cleaning rinse. Take light to the shampoo as piling your hair into a mountain of suds will only lead to dehydration. The suds that fall over your ends is plenty to cleans.

 

Step Four:

Keep a towel handy for after you complete the shampooing process. Squeeze out all excess water with the towel before starting to condition. Use a nickel size of conditioner and work it from the ends of your hair up to ensue proper nourishing.

 

**People with fine and oily hair need to be aware and keep conditioner away from scalp.

Follow this process with a mask, if recommended by your stylist.

We understand that everyone is different, but as stylist wanting to preserve your lovely locks we strongly suggest not washing your hair more than every 2 to 3 days. To avoid the greasy look, invest in a good brush, we suggest Mason Pierson, and thoroughly brush from the top of your hair to the ends. This will allow the natural oils to spread and decrease the look of unwashed hair. For styling purposes, if you need lift for your roots, spray dry shampoo only where needed and follow by normal styling routine.

Hair By Fall

trend-report

As the leaves begin to change the urge to swap up our hair color always seems to get a little bit deeper. We start looking in the mirror at our sun kissed locks and being to wonder why we ever strayed from the brunette hues in the first place. We pull the ponytail out and start reaching for those straight bang scissors. But, stop right there!

This year we dare you to not go crazy with change. Instead, take our tips and let your true hair style unveil:

For Color: We are calling a bluff on needing to be blonde in the summer and dark in the fall. As your tans begin to fade, and you feel the need to reverse your light hair dark skin tone to light skin/dark hair, remember this: consistency is key. Don’t rush for an overall color, instead ask for a gloss. It will take down the color while adding the shine and reflection you’re missing from lack of sun.

For Cuts:We can’t deny that this fall is full of froth. The new trend hitting the streets is hair looking light and airy. In some cases see through! This isn’t a trend for everyone, but it is a trend for those who can wear trends. For those looking to stay current, be on the high end for yourself. Ask what’s fitting for your current job, age and dress. Take some time to talk with your stylist and together unveil the real you.

For Style: For a long time now we have been preaching undone braids and messy finishes. For those looking to go up with their hair even through the colder months, the answer is now structure. We are moving back into the sculpted look, where braids and ponies have a put together outcome.

Don’t know how to achieve these looks on your own? Book your next appointment and ASK YOUR STYLIS!

We’ve been raving for weeks about our latest product, Oribe Gold Lust, and are in good company with our bragging rights. Harpers Bazaar is deeming the line it’s Beauty Beach Chic secret, and we have to agree!

Bazaar suggest combing in the light hair oil and letting it bake in the sun for an effortless deep condition. Consider it the new, and healthy, lemon juice treatment. By eliminating frizz, and increasing shine Oribe oils add a protective barrier to help prevent color fading.

Infused with jasmine, edelweiss flower and argan extracts these light oils absorb instantly to restore hair to it’s prime. Be beach babe ready even when the summer months are far from sight.
